I am a young developer (currently starting high school), who is constantly building new things and experimenting with new programming languages and technologies.
I've been writing code for half a decade now, and I've built quite a few things along the way. Apart from coding, my other interests include music, writing, and engineering. I also go to school, so of course that's a big part of my life at the moment.
A Semi-Brief History
2014 — Python
2014 was the year I started coding. My first language was Python. I was around nine years old, and I picked up the fundamentals of Python pretty quickly. I built a few simple projects, and learned some interesting libraries such as Turtle Graphics for really simply graphics and drawing, and Tkinter for more advanced GUIs with components like buttons and text inputs.
2015–2017: Web Development
My first real useful site was Skyewire, which allows users to share text instantly via a quick pin number. In the span of a few months, I went on to build a site for customizing and editing Hex and RGB values, called Hex RGB Creator, a Jekyll Theme called Cobalt, and HTML 5 Rocket, a collection of free, CC0 licensed HTML5 site templates.
2018–Present: Things are Getting Real
During the Winter of 2018/2019, I built quite a few more complex sites and programs. I built a Python-based static site generator called Breeze, and an AI to play the popular game 2048, called Jacob, among several others.
In the Summer of 2019, I started posting to my current site at xtrp.io, and built that site pretty quickly. Later that Summer, I built a web app for my schools Student Council, which allows students to submit ideas and vote on them to make a real impact on the school. I called the web app Your Voice, Your Vote.
I am in a great place right now. I'm learning more than ever, and starting to understand the key components of full-stack web development more and more.
I'm currently rebuilding xtrp.io with a new design and all-new open-sourced MVC architecture. That is likely the version of the site you are seeing right now!
There is so much to be done, and this is just the beginning.
I am young, and I have a lot to learn, a lot to build, and hopefully, a lot to achieve in the near future.
I've worked hard on this site, and I hope you have a great time browsing it!

Hi. This is Fred from the end of September. I've now finished the version of the site, and it is the one you are viewing right now! I really hope you like it, and I will be posting on my blog regularly.
